Hmm gaping big benz grill and upright front end? This is not Korean style at all, they are more swept back.
The CLS SLK SLS SL B and now A-Class all share the same language.
There is also alot of "flame surfacing" on the sides which echo the original 1 series BMW from 2004-11. However, I slapped my eyeballs on the new 1 series and my god.....is that one ugly machine. Sad as I liked the originals brave look, this goes too far.
I'm more interested in how it drives and if it will be as rewarding as the M135i. The RS3 just doesnt cut it in terms of driver enjoyment at this level, although having never driven one I'm only going by the rags.
